EXCLUSIVE: Before It's Released Tomorrow, Stream Telegraph Canyon's Newest LP In Full.

In the six years since the release of Telegraph Canyon's stunning sophomore The Tide and The Current LP, band frontman Chris Johnson went through some shit.

First came a divorce. Then came an extended stint living out of an RV, a vehicle otherwise meant to serve as Telegraph Canyon's touring van. Over this stretch, his was indeed something of a transient life: Before returning permanently to the region, where he found boarding in an upstairs loft space above the Fort Worth venue Shipping & Receiving, he bounced between North Texas and New Orleans with head-spinning regularity.

All the while, though, he and his bandmates found time to write and record the material that would eventually make up the eleven songs of his six-piece's third LP, You From Before — even going so far as to release a few of them as singles (if not during KXT broadcasts, you've likely heard “Wheel To The Garden” in the band's live sets in recent years), songs that hinted at a new, less intricate and more brooding direction for the band.

Tomorrow, those tracks — co-produced alongside Johnson by Matt Pence and Will Johnson of the late, great Centro-matic — finally see the light of day as a fully realized package when You From Before earns its official release from Velvet Blue Music.

Before then, though, the band's been kind enough to allow Central Track readers an early listen to the album in its entirety. Stream it below, then say it with us: “It's good to have this band back, isn't it?”
